American Music Awards 2020 betting odds are finally out. The Weeknd, DaBaby, Lady Gaga, and Megan Thee Stallion are among nominees for one of the main music awards in the United States. Check the latest predictions about the favorites of the 48th annual award ceremony.
American Music Awards is one of the most awaited shows of the year. The ceremony will honor favorite artists of Americans and can be a rehearsal of another prestigious music award – the Grammys. The upcoming ceremony will be the first AMA show ever to be pre-recorded as well as its counterpart – MTV European Music Awards. The ceremony will take place in Los Angeles with Alessia Cara as the host.
In 2020, the AMAs have announced its nominees quite late – on October 26. At the same time, the 48th annual American Music Awards is scheduled for November 22, 2020. As always, the ABC channel will broadcast the show. Let’s see who is nominated!
Favorites in 5 main American Music Awards 2020 nominations
This year, the AMAs jury members have nominated all the major music stars of the last months. Having dominated at the Billboard Music Awards or the EMAs, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, and Post Malone aim to win in most main AMA categories. The Weeknd and Roddy Ricch are the favorites with 8 nominations each. Will they win them all? Let’s see.
Artist Of The Year
AOTY is considered the main nomination at American Music Awards. Following online gambling sites in the US, here are all favorites to win the prize this year:
- Taylor Swift – 11/2
- The Weeknd – 13/2
- Post Malone – 13/2
- Roddy Ricch – 14/2
- Justin Bieber – 15/2
According to the odds taken from Bovada Sportsbook, Taylor Swift is likely to become the Artist of the Year. The pop-country artist has always been adored in the US and the last 12 months were not an exception. Swift’s albums “Lover” (2019) and “Folklore” (2020) topped the charts with the latter being the most successful LP of the year in Billboard 200. Since the start of her career, Swift received 39 AMA nominations and won 30(!) of them with four pending results. Although other artists did well this year too, it is really difficult to compete with Ms. Americana at the AMAs.
New Artist Of The Year
Six music stars are nominated for the New Artist Of The Year. DaBaby, Lil Baby, Doja Cat, Roddy Ricch, Megan Thee Stallion, and Lewis Capaldi will compete for the prize.
According to the American Music Awards 2020 predictions, Roddy Ricch is likely to win. He is the only NAOTY nominee who is also nominated for Best Artist as well as one of the two singers with most nominations. This year is successful for the rapper and his hits “The Box” and “Rockstar”. Megan Thee Stallion aka Cardi B’s “WAP” co-star is a runner-up by the odds at Bovada Sportsbook.
Favorite Music Video
The AMAs 2020 nominated five music videos in the FMV category. “Rain On Me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd, and “Cardigan” by Swift are among nominees and main favorites. Also, Doja Cat’s “Say So” and Future & Drake’s “Life Is Good” can take the award.
The winner in the Favorite Music Video nomination is the most unpredictable of all AMA nominations. Gaga & Grande’s duo can take the prize as an epic dance collaboration of two big pop stars. The Weeknd has the most-watched and cinematographically beautiful video so far and it can help him to win. Let’s not forget about Swift and her success at every AMA show. To learn more about the favorites, follow the odds at Bovada Sportsbook – they will be out very soon.
Collaboration Of The Year
Everything is more or less clear in the Collaboration Of The Year nomination at American Music Awards 2020. This year, five duos compete for the award, but there is an obvious favorite. Can you guess it before looking at five nominees?
- “Rain On Me” by Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande
- “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion
- “Savage” Remix by Megan Thee Stallion & Beyonce
- “10000 Hours” by Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber
- “Rockstar” by DaBaby and Roddy Ricch
Predictably, “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion leads all betting predictions as the biggest hit of the year. A provocative song & video by female rappers are probably the most talked-about in 2020. According to predictions, it will easily win the AMA prize as the Best Collaboration.
Favorite Social Artist
Finally, the last big nomination at American Music Awards 2020 is FSO. The Favorite Social Artist nomination honors singers who interact with their fans the most via social networks. In addition, it is one of two fan-voted categories in the award show where people can choose the winner.
This year, BTS, Billie Eilish, EXO, Ariana Grande, and NCT 127 compete for the prize. By online sportsbooks in the US, the k-pop band has no chances to lose this award. BTS’s fandom is the biggest among all nominees and bookmakers have no doubt they will help their idols to win their third AMA in this category. Previously, BTS won the Favorite Social Artist award in 2018 and 2019.
